tsung-recorder: Proxy recorder for the tsung load testing tool.
NAMEtsung-recorder - Proxy recorder for the tsung load testing tool.
tsung is a distributed load testing tool. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to stress and benchmark HTTP, WebDAV, LDAP, PostgreSQL, MySQL and Jabber/XMPP servers. tsung-recorder can be used to record sessions (only for HTTP, WebDAV and Postgresql) that can be edited and replayed later by tsung
tsung-recorder is a proxy that records a session in the tsung native XML format; it can be used by your favorite client (browser in the case of the http plugin).
- start the proxy recorder (listening port is 8090). By default the HTTP recorder is started. With the -p option, you can select another plugin. The resulting files will be created as ~/.tsung/tsung_recorderYYYMMDD-HH:MM.xml; if it doesn't work, take a look at ~/.tsung/log/tsung.log-tsunami_recorder [at] hostname
- stop the proxy recorder
- record_tag value
- add a string (comment or tag) while recording a session. This is useful for example to add transaction tag while recording a session.
